On the Kuril Islands Ebeko volcano threw a column of ash

Experts have recorded another ash emission at the volcano Ebeko located on the island of Paramushir (North Kuriles). In control Centre in crisis situations of EMERCOM of Russia, Sakhalin oblast received information that on 11 November there was ash emission of the volcano Ebeko.

Ash plume has not reached the North-Kurilsk, threats to the population there, the report says.

As reported, a weak eruption of Ebeko began the evening of October 20 this year in the form of emissions of ash clouds, ash rain fell on the streets of the North-Kurilsk.

The last time the volcano erupted in 2012, then came a period of calm.

In 2009 occurred the first phase of the eruption of the volcano Ebeko (1156 m), located 7 km Northwest of the city of Severo-Kurilsk (Northern part of Vernadsky ridge). It lasted from 29 January to 18 June, and then the volcano calmed down, but this time it is high fumarole activity.

In February 2010, scientists assumed that perhaps the volcano is preparing for the second eruption, as the thermal capacity of the thermal fields of the volcano was then 20 times above normal background values.

The lava eruption of Ebeko unlikely, scientists believe, because this volcano belongs to the family of a damped volcanoes.

Danger to inhabitants of the North-Kurilsk can provide strong palopoli, difficult breathing people, poisoning people volcanic gases, mudflows triggered by the eruption of the volcano. For aviation the threat of ash plumes Ebeko.

Over the last 2,400 years, lava flows from Ebeko was not observed. The volcano’s eruption is expressed in the constant emission of steam and volcanic gases above the crater with an admixture of ash.
